Bryce Dallas Howard is following in her dad’s footsteps and getting into directing. The two teamed up when Dallas Howard directed the short film, when you find me based on eight user submitted photographs (from 96,000 entries) chosen by her dad who also produced the short. This collaboration between the two has inspired a new contest sponsored by Canon.
Five celebrities including Georgina Chapman and Eva Longoria will be directing shorts and they will choose five user submitted shorts as well. The contest will launch in 2013.
Dallas Howard is excited to use the project to break down some the entertainment industry limitations.
I feel so fortunate that I make my living being creative, but there are limitations in the world that I’m living in, and we’re constantly bumping up against those limitations and trying to push things past an edge so that we can evolve as an industry and evolve as an art form. What was so exciting about this is that it was really something that was genuinely unique.”
